Configuring expiration time for credentials of jobs

Use this procedure to set a timeout value for the session credentials that are passed to jobs. After the credentials expire, all active client connections are closed. The NshScriptJobCredentialTimeout setting is a global setting that applies to all jobs.

  1. Start the Application Server Administration console, as described in Starting the Application Server Administration console.
  2. To set a timeout value for the job session credentials, enter the following:
    set ProcessSpawner NshScriptJobCredentialTimeout #
    where # is the number of hours (minimum of 24). The default setting is 96 hours.
    For information about the process spawner, see Configuring the process spawner.
  3. Restart the Application Server.


    If a job exceeds the timeout value in the NshScriptJobCredentialTimeout setting, an error message is written to the Application Server log and the job log.
